After watching these games and the play of this TinyGrimes fellow, what do people consider a "top level opponent?"
It sounds to me like you're being condecsending and trying to get people all riled up. If that's the case, why don't you try playing against him while streaming the game over Skype and see how you do? Talking through all your actions is really different, especially when you're trying to explain to the viewers what's going on without revealing to your opponent what's happening. Also, TinyGrimes appears to be part of a solid play group. He plays most of his games in person, I believe. Switching to OCTGN, it's easy to miss certain cards and such. Assuming that you are trying to troll, the assumption one would make is that you posted this because you think you're better. Now that you've made this post, I'd say you need to put that to the test. Play someone on OCTGN and stream the game live while explaining your actions to others. "Then, and only then, a Jedi will you be." You're not gonna gain any prestige by tearing others down with words alone.
If this is an honest question, I'd say a top level opponent is one who really understands the game and can make use of any synergy available to him (or her). However, you can be the best analytical mind out there and still lose because at the end of the day, this is a card game and luck of the draw can kill you. Also, being a top level player doesn't mean you always win. You've gotta try new decks out so you don't stagnate and those trials aren't always going to end well. Another angle is that a top level player is one who plays his best when it really counts (i.e. tournaments). It's a fallacy, in my opinion, to imply that TinyGrimes is not a top level player just because he lost a few games. I think with time we'll see him get used to playing while streaming. [And if your post really was an honest question, it's probably best to leave out phrases like "this TinyGrimes fellow."]
In closing, why am I defending TinyGrimes? I don't know him personally. I have nothing to gain from supporting him, even if he's lost a couple games. But he's taken a risk by putting himself out there and providing a neat video service to the community. I think there is enough of hate, strife, bickering, and flat-out meanness in the world today. We don't need to bring that into gaming. What does it do for the community? How is that helping anyone or improving anyone's game? Analyzing plays, pointing out misplays or alterative plays -- these things help the community. These are why the videos are presented to us. Gaming is supposed to be about fun. I like to win, but at the end of the day, I play to have fun. It will be a sad day if the SW:TCG community loses sight of that.
